EXAMINATION REPORT Course Code/Title Semester PART I : BUS201 / Contract & Agency Law :


Course Code/Title



: BUS201 / Contract & Agency Law

: July 2011

Overall Performance of Students in the Examination:

Overall the performance was good. For the ECA, some of the students were unable to understand the requirement of a particular question posed to them and wrote all they know or something totally different from the question. The particular structured question (Question No 1 in ECA) was to test the students understanding on vitiating factors that will invalidate a contract. The case scenario in the said structured question related to an illegal money-lending transaction. The vitiating factor of illegality was very obvious and yet some students were misled by the red-herring in the question and wrote on the vitiating factor of mistake.

Strengths and Weaknesses of Students in Examination:

Most students did not have much difficulty in identifying the legal issues and the applicable law. However their main weakness appears to be their inability to analyze the issues systematically. Some had difficulty in relating the applicable law to the facts in the case scenario given in the question.
